Hi, I'm John-Christian
I specialise in unit stills, portraiture and performance photography, although I have been told I do some rather nice landscape, travel, and wildlife work too.
I’ve been a professional photographer snapping film, music, dance, and drama related subjects for over 37 years now, from Pete Townshend and Robert Palmer, to English Festival Ballet and Momix, to Peter Ustinov and Catherine Zeta Jones. As a boy I decided I wanted to work in the film industry after seeing Chita Rivera, Shirley Maclaine, & Paula Kelly sing “There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This” in the film Sweet Charity. And there was, being a film creative.
Highlights from John-Christian
Sir Peter Ustinov. He was probably the most famous actor I had photographed at the time. His reputation preceded him. Intelligent, funny, and didn’t suffer fools gladly. So I was a little nervous and intimitated at first but it soon became obvious he liked to tell tales while being photographed. He was so animated I didn’t need to give him much direction. They were great stories, witty, interesting, and unusual. All told with an amazing cast of characters. The trouble was I had to get a serious photo of him too, preferably not talking. So, interupting politely, I said “Mr Ustinov, do you mind if I call you Peter?”. “Not at all.” came the reply. “Peter, could you stop talking so I can get at least one serious photo of you.” He gave me a look, then smiled, then obliged perfectly posing serenely like the professional he was.
